In Shadows of the Cross, Michael Raiter encourages readers to reflect on the death of the Lord Jesus by exploring how the Old Testament foretold the coming of the death of the Messiah in pictures, poems and prophecies. While we may not see Jesus as clearly in promise as we do in fulfilment, the Old Testament is like a shadow that points to the reality—the gift of God’s Son which demonstrates the length, breadth, height and depth of God’s love for us. In this way the Old Testament calls all people to put their faith in Jesus.
